Congress Reaffirms Strength of U.S.-Israel Alliance
AIPAC report - Apr 25, 2008
The Jerusalem Connection
In a landmark display of U.S. friendship with Israel, the House and Senate overwhelmingly passed resolutions recognizing the 60th anniversary of Israel's birth and reaffirming the close ties between the United States and Israel. In the Senate, the resolution (S. Res. 522) was cosponsored by the entire chamber and passed by unanimous consent. The House approved its version (H. Res. 322) by a resounding vote of 417-0. The Speaker of the House, who traditionally does not cosponsor legislation, joined Democratic and Republican House leaders as a lead sponsor of the bill. The resolutions were introduced in the House by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Republican Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO), and in the Senate by Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). In addition, the Democratic Israel Working Group and the House Republican Israel Caucus are spearheading a series of weekly floor speeches to honor Israelýs 60th anniversary and the contributions the Jewish state has made during the past six decades. Please thank your members of the House and Senate for supporting the resolutions and urge them to deliver floor speeches.
